Senior Portrait Submission
Echoes 2018 ~ Hamburg High School
**The following specifications are required of senior portraits to be printed in the 2018 yearbook. Every year there are Hamburg Seniors who submit portraits that do not meet specifications and their portraits are rejected for publication. Seniors, it is your responsibility to make sure your portraits adhere to these specifications.
**Students who are Photographed by Prestige Portraits, a division of LifeTouch, the school photographer, need not worry about these specifications since they will automatically take portraits which follow these guidelines. Portraits selected must match these specifications although other types of poses may be taken for your purchase. Prestige Portraits will automatically send the selected photograph to the yearbook staff. Senior portraits are generally taken at school in late May / early June and then again in the Fall.
**Students who opt not to use LifeTouch must submit their senior portraits to Mrs. Winters (room 214) by WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2017. It is the student’s
responsibility of the to be sure an appropriate photo is submitted for publication. It is not the responsibility of the studio to deliver these photos to Echoes. The yearbook staff does not notify seniors whose photos are not received.
